Very little in fact; our stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid, which is strong enough to dissolve solid rock. By the time the cola is digested there’s very little left that could even have a slight effect on the body.
I respectfully disagree, Mewnani. Most of today's headlines on the Blaze made my blood boil, this story might have a slight fluff factor to it but i welcome it, I needed a break. Besides i think Swift is classy, why not do a story on her.

And... apparently you clicked away. So, now what's your gripe?

There’s been a lot of those lately. Where are they coming from and who’s calling them?

Anybody who says a fetus is nothing but a lump of tissue has never hatched eggs before. You can candle them each day and even from the first day they’re alive. Heck you can look in there and see the eyes, the head, the body, and sometimes even see it moving. It’s a chick and absolutely nothing else, and the same principle applies with a human baby. If they were in eggs you’d be able to watch them grow as a chick does, just more slowly.
Life-long liberal, now conservative David Mamet, says leftists pretend not to understand things. They really do understand. It's a game. They want to commit murder with society's blessing.

Ain’t a heartbeat detectible just a few hours in? How people can look at that and think “kill it!” is beyond me. They have to be possessed by some kind of demon; it’s like candling an egg and seeing the little chick inside and throwing the egg away, smashing it into the wall.
They want it gone. Abortionists and former abortionists say - We all know it's a human life.
It's far worse than that, because the chicken is created and maintained as food and has no chance of ever being much better than that. Just doesn't compare to a human being.

You looked at that and thought that too? I thought of that scene in Prometheus.
It’s really neat to look at though; it reminds me of a chick growing in an egg. The inside of the egg ends up like that.

The main problem is the peaceful kids there are far outweighed by another group that wants to do harm to others. Even if these kids genuinely wanted to stand up for the synagogue (which I believe they did) they’re outnumbered and outgunned. I hope the bad guys don’t find out who they are; they won’t hesitate to kill them for this.

The water melted around the shape of the jeep and froze quickly enough to maintain the jeep’s shape. It’s naturally made because humans didn’t create it.

So if you ingest this compound in much higher doses over the course of your lifetime than is normal and regularly possible, you might get lung cancer. Who the heck got lung cancer off drinking soda? 80% of people who get it either smoked or were exposed to secondhand smoke. This is just a cherry-picked study trying to scare people.
Mewnani- since discovering the gene that actually causes lung cancer, the scholarship (well, outside the AMA-controlled US) on lung cancer has changed dramatically.
The second-hand smoke research was always based on the (now found to be flawed) presumption of the causal link between smoking and lung cancer. The 80% figure is bogus; in any case, correlation and causality are very different levels of evidence.
Do people with the gene for lung cancer smoke more than the general population? Yes they do. Do people who never smoked at all get lung cancer? Yes they do.
Inconvenient truths indeed . . . however, it will take an actual genetic "cure" for lung cancer before the medical establishment int he USA to admit they jumped the gun a wee bit back when they drew the causal arrow between smoking and lung cancer. Kinda got it backwards.

Wow, the irony. We have an article about how to stay invisible on the internet on a website filled with every means known to man designed to ferret out who you are, what your shopping habits are, hijack your browser and be dang near unusable without a bunch of Firefox addons. This site is a mess of ads and the mobile version is unusable because of said ads. In short, staying invisible is impossible on this site.
amen- because of all the bullshit advertising constantly loading and moving and changing i can never watch anything on this site
Hhmmm...I can only give 1 thumbs up, sorry.
Downside is you have to disable certain a add-on to comment on the Blaze...
I never see any ads here anymore. I used to, but not now. Don't know why unless it's because I use an older Mac with an older OS.

Well the story does say COMMENTARY on the category the story’s in before you click on it. This naturally means the author’s OPINIONS on a story with some factual evidence included in the article. It’s your fault you expected anything other than that.

I’d choose a kid acting like himself over some roboticized child taking medication getting perfect grades. You can’t just drug a kid up because you want better grades! You can’t gauge a kid if he has a disorder because his grades aren’t high enough! Ain’t it normal that kids generally don’t like sitting in a classroom for 6 hours a day and naturally don’t pay attention to things they don’t like? There’s better ways to get a child to make better grades in school than hopping him up on medication that might damage him later.

As a child I actually was diagnosed with this; the doctors at the kindergarten I used to attend assumed I had the disease due to being a hyperactive little child who liked to run around all over the place and wanted me to take medication for it. My mother responded by pulling me out and putting me into another school, and I did well. I’m still pretty hyper as an adult, but there’s no way I’d be myself without the tendency to go on mental tangents and occasionally go nuts in a fit of writing or composing music.
I know a guy that actually needs the medication for it, and he needs the medicine or else he can’t function. I think the disease definitely does exist in some form, but the people that get mistaken for it far outweigh the ones that have it, and that’s not a good thing. If it were up to them, they’d have me take medicine that I didn’t need, and they still make kids take medicine they don’t need either simply because they want better grades or want the kid to be less annoying. I hope it stops; this stuff can ruin kids, and it’s meant only for people who desperately need it, not just any hyper little kid off the street.
Several years ago, 18-24 month old children started being diagnosed with ADHD because they couldn't stay on task for long. Hello! that's the age appropriate behavior.
The military won't enlist anyone who has been on ADHD meds and the meds also cause many medical problems.
I had a friend in college that was hyper. He said the school treated it themselves and served the kids coffee every morning (works as a depressant in children, like prescription speed, but safer)

She’s a child who mentally is a lot younger than she really is, and is nuts. To her, they are. It’s heartbreaking; this kid is just broken.
 February 18, 2015 at 12:26am
Satan’s certainly the cause of her delusions. She honestly believes in things 3 year olds do, and they grow out of it. There’s clearly something wrong in there.
When you kill people at their age because slenderman told them to, you have to wonder what they would have done as adults if not caught? Like the teenagers that storm stores, bomb businesses, shoot up cops, or kill their parents?

See my comment above. He’s a horror villain in a bunch of internet horror stories that goes around making people go nuts and causing your camera to glitch up.
 February 18, 2015 at 12:21am
The Slender Man is the main villain of the Slender Man Mythos, a bunch of stories written by people on the internet. He’s a very tall humanoid with a blank face wearing a black suit, and though his powers vary between stories in general he’s capable of making people go bonkers, of teleportation, and causing all kinds of malfunctions in electronic devices. He’s on the same line as Freddy Kreuger, Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees, and he’s basically a fictional villain in a bunch of horror stories.

Those first pictures looked like they could have been from Marble Hornets or any of the other Slender Man video series on the internet. Really goes to show you should keep an eye on what your kids are watching, as those series are NOT for little children. This particular child is a lunatic though. Keep her the heck away from other kids.
